Pearson ebooks on Dawsonera - changed access2015-01-29
The publisher Pearson has changed its position on the use of its ebooks on Dawsonera. As of Monday 12 January, Pearson ebooks will only be available to read online, not to download to your device.
The read online feature is also restricted because of a credit system that allows only 100 credits per year instead of the normal 400.
When all our credits are used, access is not allowed until on the anniversary of purchase when the credits are renewed.
Karlstad university library does not think these are acceptable terms and will in the future try to avoid buying these books.
At the moment this affects about 20 ebooks on Dawsonera and we will try to buy extra paper copies to help satisfy demand.
